I had very high hopes of starting early and making the first delivery on Memorial Day Weekend. Though the sun shone brightly and the soil was easy to work with, there was very little rain. All those seeds that went into the ground did not have enough moisture to sprout. Wooden stakes are growing impressively on the farm, lining up neatly and stretching deep into midfield, yet, no hints of green.
Here’s to hoping showers come in May, but I have to be careful what I wish for. It has to come in light stretches, and not the torrential thunderstorming kind, especially not on the weekends.
